The DAMS team will leave the Formula Renault 3.5 Series at the end of the season after the rebranded championship announced the teams that will be competing in 2016.

The French team are the only current team not to commit to the championship under new promoters RPM Racing, with the Teams’ Champions from 2013 and 2014 set to put their focus on their GP2 Series and Formula E teams.

The other nine full-time teams from the 2015 season are on the list, as are Comtec Racing, who have only raced once this season with Louis Deletraz at the Red Bull Ring, while the new Spirit of Race team are also confirmed.
